This is the BRUTALISM logo generator.
There are three ways of running it:
- From a REPL (for interactive tweaking and playing around with parameters).
- As a standalone build.
It is assumed you already have a healthy Clojure environment set up, with Leiningen installed.
Running from a REPL
lein repl :start :port PORT_NUMBER will start (eventually, it takes a while) a REPL with a sketch already presented in a separate window. You can then connect to the REPL using your preferred environment and start evaluating expressions. I'm using LightTable, that's why you'll see some LT-related nREPL middleware in my
Your main point of entry for playing around with the generator is the
Starting a standalone build
If you just want to have a standalone sketch running, you can execute
lein run. Do this if you don't need a REPL, or don't know how to use it.
You can find all the generated JS in the
web/js folder, and see it working if you open
BRU-3 has been developed as a first in (what will hopefully be) a series of projects exploring generative graphic design and brand identity. My aim was to develop a system for generating logos which the people will associate with the studio as a brand. By looking at numerous instances of the system's output, people will develop a connection with the underlying algorithm and the style it generates, rather than associating the brand with just a single image.
Have fun playing around with it, and please send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Obey the Algorithm.
